Spats and Gauntlets

I wonder if I should try knitting some spats for a Steampunk outfit I'm working on. For once, the male costumes are just as cool as the female ones. If you don't know what Steampunk is, look it up on Youtube. A video is worth even more words than a photo.

Yesterday we visited with friends and I worked on my knitted mitts. I'm almost done with the first one. People still ask me what they are for. I guess the mainstream has never seen wrist gauntlets/cuffs/mitts. Funny how I got the same reaction from people in the 1970's. They've never been really mainstream. Though jugglers and belly dancers have worn them for as long as I can remember.
